Following on from planes last week, we spent this week having fun with rockets.


– painting a rocket and aluminium foil

– planet painting (rolling practice golf balls through paint)

– sorting words into two rockets (we used words that begin with ‘g’ and words that end with ‘g’ but this activity lends itself to so many possibilities. Inspired by this).

Рstraw rockets (instructions here.)
